I have SQL Server 2005 (Standard Ver) installed on my Windows XP computer.  As this version does not allow attaching a new database file from the application code (as does the Express ver), apparently I need first to attach these databases manually and then use them. Here are my questions:

  1. There are nine (9) databases listed under the App_Data folder. Should I need to Attach all these databases to the SQL Server 2005 to successfully run the Sample application?
  2. I need to change the Connectionstrings in the Web.conf file as these are meant for the SQLExpress version. Can you provide me a modified Connectionstring that I can use with SQL Server 2005.
  3. Any other suggestion that you may like to provide to successfully run the Sample application from the standard version of SQL Server.
